Grants & Scholarships

Generous donors have made gifts that enable the Holston Foundation to support United Methodist churches, ministries, and organizations with grants. Donors have also shared the gift of education given through scholarships to higher education and seminary students.

The Holston Foundation stewards nearly 200 special-purpose endowments and scholarships that were created by generous donors and families who wanted to support specific ministries and students. Their legacies and gifts make the Holston Foundation’s grants and scholarships possible.

Grant and scholarship applications are awarded annually. New applications are now available!  Grant applications are due March 31, 2023. Scholarship applications are due May 5, 2023.
